BROCKWAY, Pa. (EYT) – It was a night of talent and entertainment as students and teachers performed in the Varsity B Show Thursday at Brockway Area High School.

A long-standing tradition of nearly 40 years, the proceeds from the Varsity B go to the Varsity Club Jacket Fund, which helps offset the cost of letter jackets for Brockway students who play sports and participate in music and band.

A second-year English teacher at Brockway, Andrew Bundy, who is running the show explained the event and some of the history.

“Recently-retired principal Dee Dee Carlini ran the show for more than 30 years, and now I have the privilege of doing it,” Bundy said. “It’s one of several events that are done to help raise money for the varsity jackets, but this is the biggest. For the first time, teachers participated in the show, which was a lot of fun.”

A nearly-packed auditorium at Brockway Area High School enjoyed several comedy skits, singers, and musical performers during the show.

Foreign language teacher Eric Stawecki got the crowd warmed up as he took the stage on a unicycle then delivered his stand-up routine.

Cody Kuntz opened the student performances with a piano medley that included songs by Coldplay, Mulan, Kyle Landry, and Guns N’ Roses.

Leslee Weible (Class of 2016), sang Vance Joy’s Riptide, while the trio of Ricky Boleen Jr.(Class of 2016), Austin Sansig (Class of 2016), and Ryan Sansig (Class of 2012), did a rock classic, Rush’s YYZ, which was recorded in 1980, making it twice as old or older than most of the performers.
